FalconStor Launches VTL Backup Accelerator

MELVILLE, N.Y. -- FalconStor Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: FALC), the provider of TOTALLY Open data protection solutions, today announced a new backup acceleration option for FalconStor® Virtual Tape Library (VTL). The new FalconStor VTL Backup Accelerator improves backup processes by offloading backups from production environments, eliminating impact on host applications, boosting speed and entirely eliminating the backup window. Typical backup speed enhancements range from 4 to 8 times faster than host-based backups, significantly reducing backup time, reclaiming backup management time and lowering operating costs.

“Backup systems in use today were designed for a fraction of the volume data that modern enterprises routinely manage and protect every day; most IT managers are overwhelmed with the daunting task of maintaining a simple routine backup schedule, and they need a creative solution,” said Alex Jiang, vice president of worldwide marketing, FalconStor Software. “FalconStor understands backup better than most data protection vendors, and we have designed an elegant solution that allows today’s businesses to protect their most import asset without working around the clock.”
